Conor McGregor And Floyd Mayweather To Face Off On A Live TV Show

Conor McGregor And Floyd Mayweather To Face Off On A Live TV Show

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will reignite their feud in Japan as part of an updated version of the classic show Superstars.

The 31-year-old UFC superstar previously lost against the 42-year-old American in a blockbuster boxing match in 2017.

And now McGregor, who has not competed in the UFC since his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov last October, has reportedly been offered a whopping £10m to appear on the live show on New Year's Eve.

A source told the Daily Star: "Conor is on the edge of signing.

"There is no direct combat involved so it doesn't breach his UFC contract and he should be fine to take part."

Superstars was a popular show on the BBC in the 1970s and had athletes from different sports competing against one another in a series of different tests.

According to the newspaper, McGregor and Mayweather will take on two Japanese kickboxers on the show.

And one of those kickboxers is Tenshin Nasukawa, who fought against Mayweather in an exhibition match last year in Japan.

The undefeated Mayweather humiliated the 20-year-old Japanese kickboxer as he knocked him down three times in a first-round victory.

Japanese MMA organisation Rizin Fighting Federation promoted the exhibition bout on New Year's Eve and is now planning the upcoming Superstars event in Japan.

Mayweather recently hit the headlines after a video surfaced of him suggesting that he would be travelling to Saudi Arabia over potential talks for a Manny Pacquiao rematch.

But the retired boxer dismissed ideas of the blockbuster rematch happening after claiming that the viral video was "old."

Mayweather, who defeated Pacquiao in 2015, also admitted that he was paid over a whopping $2m to make the video.

McGregor has also been grabbing the headlines after a video emerged of him punching a drinker in a pub in Dublin.

Should McGregor and Mayweather have a rematch?

Let us know in the comments.
